Q. How do I request an article that we don’t own?

Answer

If the Library does not have access to the full text of an article, place a request using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). In most cases, the article will be available electronically for you in 1 to 2 days. Articles are more likely to come quickly if you enter as much information about the citation as possible. This service is managed by the Library's Interlibrary Loan Department.

1. I found an article in a database, but there's no full-text available.

  • Click on the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) link.

  • Log into your ILLiad account by typing your Skidmore username and password. 
  • Click "Submit Request" on the bottom of the request form.

2. I have an article, but we don't own the full-text. (Check to make sure we don't own the full-text using the Journals search - see video below).

  • Log into your ILLiad account by typing your Skidmore username and password.
  • Click "Article" under New Request.
  • Fill out the bibliographic information on the form. 
  • Click "Submit Request" on the bottom.
